Manchester United on Saturday, came from a goal down to beat West Ham, as the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s managed side, go 4th on the Premier League table.
The game against West Ham which ended some few minutes ago, saw the Manchester United return to winning ways after their defeat against PSG in the Champions League in midweek.
Although the Red Devil did not play an impressive game, they were able to manage a win away from home, as goals from Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood and substitute Marcus Rashford were enough for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to have something to smile about tonight.
David Moyes’ side made by far the better start and were rewarded for their first-half superiority when the unmarked Tomas Soucek headed in from a corner after 38 minutes.
They should have added more before the interval, but Pablo Fornals hit the post and Sebastien Haller slipped at the crucial moment after rounding goalkeeper Dean Henderson – who was making his first Premier League start for the visitors.
After being omitted with a crucial Champions League meeting with RB Leipzig looming on Tuesday, the introduction of Bruno Fernandes and Rashford coincided with a much-improved second-half display from Solskjaer’s side.
Pogba’s excellent finish from outside the box eventually stood following a VAR review to check whether Henderson’s long clearance to Rashford had curled out of play and then back in.
Rashford’s cool finish after Greenwood had slotted in from Alex Telles’ cross made it three goals in 13 minutes as United moved two points behind leaders Tottenham. But other teams are yet to play, and until the weekend’s rounds of games are concluded United will know where they are on the table.
